The 2018 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 14, but before the all-star party at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 52nd annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.

The five country men nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards are at the top of their game. Who are you rooting for?

Male Vocalist of the Year is just one of several categories that Dierks Bentley is in the running for at the 2018 CMA Awards, a nod to his big year of music surrounding the release of his album The Mountain. Up-and-comer Luke Combs, another Male Vocalist of the Year nominee, just keeps cranking out hit after hit, with no signs of slowing down.

Thomas Rhett, meanwhile, is still riding multiple successes from his Life Changes album, while last year's winner, Chris Stapleton, appears in multiple categories again in 2018, including Male Vocalist of the Year. Keith Urban, too, makes a repeat appearance on this list.

Who do you think should win Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards? Vote in the poll below through the end of the day on Nov. 11. The Boot will use the answers in our readers vs. staff predictions a few days prior to the ceremony.

The 2018 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 14. The show is scheduled to begin at 8PM ET on ABC, with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returning as co-hosts for an 11th year.
